of students? at a more informed, less informed? >> guest: there's someone who works at google and esa concept he calls the pharmacy. he believes education needs to be cared. a lot of people in lower and higher education are essentially the same thing that we should be spending our first teaching people how to find stuff, how to find information. this is different from knowing things. so if i took all the electricity away and there's a blackout, yet no electricity for weaker to me can ask my students if your devices don't work, what do you know? the answer is they'll tell me not much because i need to be a defined as. studies done by psychologists in which she said if you ask people to do a google search and later you ask them what they found, they're better at remembering how they thought the search path and they are remembering the content. someone if it happens to bless google, i couldn't live without it. what it's doing is redefining what it means to know. if you students raised not just because it ologies, people in education say we should learn how to do things. one should be part of the
? of a more informed or less informed? >> guest: there is somebody that works at google with the name of the and he calls it inform the see that education, he is not alone in this they're saying the same thing that we suspend our efforts teaching people how to find stuff for information on the internet it is different from knowing things. the fight took all the electricity away we have a blackout i said if your devices don't work what do you know, ? they will say not much because i need to be able to find things it is published last year that if you ask people to do a google search than later ask them what they found, there better remembering how they followed the search path they're remembering the contents. so these technologies, plus kugel maybe i could live without it but it is redefining what it means to no. not just because of technology but people in education say we should learn how to use these. we are raising a generation of people to believe it is not what you know, or how you analyze the argument or who you are but that worries me incredibly. >> host: what is your view on
? are they more informed, less informed? >> guest: okay. there is someone who works at google by the name of dan russell, and he has a concept he calls inform si. and what he believes is that education needs to be geared, and he's not alone in this. an awful lot of people are arguing, unfortunately, the same thing, that we should be spending our efforts teaching people how to find stuff. how to find information. on the internet. and if you're dan russell at google, right? this is different than knowing things. so if i took all the electricity away, we often have no electricity for a week, for two weeks, yeah? and i ask my students if your devices don't work, what do you know in and the answer is, they will tell me, not much. because i need to be able to find things. we have studies by one named betsy sparrow last year, i believe, in which she said if you ask people to do a google search and then later you ask them what they found, they're better at remembering how they followed the search path than they are remembering the content. so one of the things that's happening as these technologies -- a
of working at google. and i think that we using the best of both worlds in managing sentinel, which is the best in the world. with the innovative, rapid and cost effective methods that are learned at google. the secret to success as a learned of both of these organizations is hiring the very best people, and i think we've done that. i do want to talk about desperate to have a difficult and. we are a public-private partnership. we have a space act agreement to which nasa will be allowing us to use the deep space network a telescope, to transfer the data and also nasa experts are part of our team. they're a very important part of our project. sentinel is important on a number of levels. not only what let us know if an asteroid will hit the earth but it will find asteroids that nearly come close to the earth. this happens all the time. disasters come close to the earth will be attractive targets for exploration, and robots in the coming is to associate an asteroid the thought of an impact trajectory, i'm reminded there's a 30% chance there is a five-megaton or impact that will hit as t
of precedent in companies like google, google in new york expanded to 12 weeks' paid maternity leave because they had too many women leaving. that is what happens. once they got -- improved their retention rate it is paying off. >> i want to shift, her name is in the air already, cheryl sandberg and what she has been attracting. when we talk about how we solve this problem, there are some women ceos who stepped forward and most notably sandberg, she has received a kind of astonishing analysis of vitriol. on one level, i have written about this, on the one level we want more women ceos but the same people who say that kind of hate the women ceos we have. we look at cheryl sandberg and can't stand a million things about them and it is worth thinking about why and some of the critiques are interesting because she is trying to use some of the things that we think about this sort of next stage revolution and she is trying to talk to women about how to succeed in a kind of cutthroat high-level business structure while not sacrificing family. and to a great deal of anger from women critics, from fe
a google, they have thousands of miles of fiber and servers and routers, and they offer voice data and video services. i also just described at&t ask comcast and verizon. so from an engineering perspective, some of these companies will look just like telecom companies which means they're this close to being regulated globally as a monopoly phone service. if we do that in the united states under title ii, if we crassfy internet broadband -- classify internet broadband service as a monopoly service, it will be catastrophic for the internet economy. >> host: commissioner mcdowell, as always, appreciate you being op "the communicators." todd shields with bloomberg, you as well. >> thank you, enjoyed it. >> guest: thanks for having us. >> c-span, created by america's cable companies in
like google, they have thousands of miles of fiber and offer voice and video services. i described at&t, comcast, and verizon. some of the tech companies like like telecom companies meaning they are this close to be regulated globally as a moo notary public -- monopoly. if we do that in the united states, classify the service as monopoly phone service, it will be absolutely catastrophic for the interpret economy. >> host: unfortunately, we're out of time. commissioner, as always, appreciate you being on "the communicators," and todd shields, you and bloomberg as well. >> guest: thanks for having me.
to. and commercial uses, google has started using them to assist in their operations in other countries not yet in the united states, so they're going to be used commercially and in my opening statement that creates new challenges. >> senator lee was asking about the technologies, according to congressional research service some have facial recognition technology and radar which can see through walls and airport security and layers of clothing. what are some of these more advanced features of domestic drones and how do you see this being developed? michael toscano? >> the technology being utilized is no different from the technology that exists today and can be used by man systems. there was no technology lead that was taken place by the addition of the uav and the concerns we are having that you might be able to do these things at a very low cost with a larger volume is the same thing that caused the economic benefits in what was seen of the utilization. it is something we have to address because there is the huge upside to this technology and because of that you cannot stop
say to that matrix? >> guest: there's a lot of talk these millennials on the google earth will become conservatives. the history while that phrase there is something out about it that history doesn't necessarily show it. it shows when people's impressions of the parties and values are formed when they are younger and they tend to stick with them for a long time republicans have a window that perhaps is closing very quickly to be an impressionable on the millennials and reach out to them and it has to be more than hit pop lyrics and sort of more than just saying i am cool because that is just so faith and i see a lot of politicians doing that as a way to reach of young people and they want to be spoken to like they are adults and that is what barack obama did so well in 2008. i don't think politicians have done enough of the had just gone to a college campus and said here i am. im cool it's great to see all you guys that actually asking young people for their vote in the same way that they ask people in the generations for their vote. >> host: if they go to the college campus is at all
and michael collins. i was intrigued by some of those and thanks to google could find in "new york times" article from 1887 when the brother had assembled in the hall and the article is entitled marred by discord. apparently one of the speakers named richard " after a careful study of irish history, he comes to the conclusion the best way to right the wrongs of the oppressed country was to plant the bomb and a part of england. therein followed jeers and i yell of dynamite. this speaker then attacked another speaker, mr. patrick, whose name was received with catcalls and he had to be protected by people who were escorted out of paul. -- hall''. tonight will be much more civil than that but to give you a sense of continuity of the history here coming it is most fitting lee it will come the most honorable mary robinson the former un high commissioner to cooper union and president of ireland. her career is devoted to the pursuit of fairness in all aspects of society. as an activist lawyer she defended the causes of women that were marginalized as a member of the irish senate she promoted pro
, you have, i mean, g. mail, google voice, drop box, as an announced in the front page of the "washington post" fairly recently after the certain scandal, the use of draft folders, or of course the one of valor that we use the most often is if you chat feature in scrabble. that also is the way a person of valor uses it to blow the seven letter use, i use it to say it's really unfair because i only have vowels. [laughter] so those are things that are not covered 1994 statute. the importance to us is, i think pretty clear what we don't is the ability to go to court and say we need a court order that actually requires the recipient of the order to e effectuate and intercept it. most people who are not lawyers sort of assume that's what you're getting when you be to court and meet the high standards of, you know, the high -- there is a you go the neutral and detached imagine evaluate, you show probable cause you think you are getting an order that you have to effectuate the communication. it's not what you get. you have to provide technical assistance is what you get. as i
proudly served at nasa for 12 years as an astronaut, and i also had the privilege of working at google. and i think that we are using the best of both worlds in managing sentinel. we're combining the technical rigor of nasa which is the best in the world with the innovative, rapid and cost effective practices that i learned at google. and the secret to success, as i learned at both of these organizations, is hiring the very best people, and i think we've done that. so i do want to talk a little bit about nasa. they have a very significant role in this. we are, in a true sense, a public/private partnership. we have a space act agreement in which nasa will be allowing us to use the deep space network of telescopes to transmit our data, and also nasa experts are part of our review teams. so they are very important part of our project. sentinel will be important on a firm of levels. not only will it enable us to know if an asteroid is going to hit the earth in time to deflect one, but it'll find asteroids that merely come close to the earth, and this happens all the time. and these asteroi
there are going to be incredible commercial uses. google has started using them to assist in operations in other countries not yet in the united states. they are going to be used commercially and as i said my opening statement that creates new challenges as well. >> that comes against the laws and according to congressional research, they have fresh ignition technology but are these advanced features and how do you see this being developed? either they could ask you, mr. toscano. >> it is no different than the technology that exists today. there is no leap taken place in the introduction of a uas. the concerns you have that we can do the things that a low cost is the same thing that caused the economic benefits in what we see at the utilization. so it is something we have to address because there's a huge upside to this technology and because of that, you cannot stop people from misusing any technology, just like the facial recognition, thermal imaging. if you misuse it, you should be punished. >> i just don't think the laws have caught up with mr. technology. >> i may be the issue we should be
. just last year, a subcommittee report outlined how just three u.s. companies -- apple, google and microsoft -- had used offshore gimmicks to avoid taxes on almost $80 billion in profi profits. much of this tax avoidance stems from manipulation of intellectual property and other intangibles. companies develop valuable knowledge within the united states, often using tax credits, grants and other federal suppo support. they then transfer that valuable property under various legal schemes to offshore subsidiaries at bargain basement prices, thereby shifting the profit that this valuable property generates overseas where it is shielded from taxes. other offshore schemes involve pretzel-like twisting of tax laws. for example, the subcommittee found that hewlett-packard employed such a gimmick to bring home money that was held offshore, to bring it back to the united states without paying the required taxes. now, here's what the law requires. that when profits are brought back to the united states, profits are taxed. the i.r.s. allows an exemption for very short-term loans from offsh
